What is a ‘Kokodama’

Based on traditional Japanese Kokedamas which are made using moss, our new Kokodamas are coconut fibre bowls handmade in Sri Lanka. They are 99% natural and 100% biodegradable! 

There’s no need for a decorative plant pot - they look great as they come! You can start creating your own indoor jungle by hanging them using the rope included in each box. When you get a gorgeous Kokodama plant to decorate your space, you get one Kokodama pot, a plant (typically with shallow roots so it can stay in its Kokodama home) and a paper pot in which your plant comes potted.

Did you know that the Coconut Palm is one of the oldest trees in the world? It's also called the ‘Tree of Life’ as, throughout history, it provided humans with food, drink, shelter and clothing. In this case, it provides our green friends with a lovely place to live. Say goodbye to plastic pots and say hello to the Kokodama!

Kokodamas are ideal for small homes because of their space-saving attributes. Biodegradable, natural, and just downright beautiful, a Kokodama collection for the home can level up any living space.

What Is The Purpose Of Kokodama?

A sustainable alternative to plastic plant pots, Kokodama pots could help the environment and the Sri Lankan people by creating your own private oasis! Sri Lanka is one of the top 5 exporters of fresh and dried coconut products on the planet. Approximately 12% of all the country's agricultural produce is coconut-based. 

Our suppliers work with communities that carefully handmade the Kokodama bowls. A margin of the profits of the sales goes back to these communities to help with local projects that give school children a better future.

Kokodamas will create an outdoor feel to your indoor space and help you design a balanced and harmonious atmosphere at home. And, because they are handmade, each of them is a unique individual! Kokodama pots allow you to save space if you don’t have ample spots to keep plants.

There’s also no stress about picking the perfect Kokodama pot - that’s already figured out for you. If you have run out of surface space, you can hang your Kokodama collection from the ceiling with the included hanging rope!

How Do You Maintain Your Kokodama?

Because Kokodamas are made out of pure coconut fibres, you may need to give them a little bit more attention and TLC than regular ceramic pots. With the right care, Kokodamas are very sturdy and should grace your room with their natural tropical look!

In general, a top tip is to take your plant out of the Kokodama whenever it’s watering time. This stops any unnecessary water seeping into the pot, which can potentially damage the natural coconut shell fibres and the paper pot over time.

If you tend to overwater, the paper pot can fall apart and the soil will be in direct contact with the hard coconut fibres of the Kokodama. If this happens, try to remove the plant and as much of the soil as possible and put it into a plastic nursery pot, and your plant will be fine! Otherwise, if you leave it for too long, your plant can eventually die as it will get too dry when potted directly into the Kokodamas. 

Our Kokodama plants are typically epiphytes and have a shallow root system. This means that they barely need to be repotted, so if you’re looking for low-maintenance, you’ve come to the right place!

Frequently Asked Questions

How Often Should I Water My Kokodama Plant?

It all depends on the plant that’s inside the Kokodama! Some may be thirstier than others whereas some may be more drought tolerant. It really depends on what plant is nestled in your Kokodama pot. Generally, little and often is best but always check the care guides.

However, you should always take your plant out of the Kokodama pot when you decide it’s time for watering. All our plants come in their own paper nursing pots which makes them easy to take out of the decorative pot and water. Otherwise, if you water inside the Kokodama pot, you risk it getting damaged by water!

How Long Can Kokodamas Last?

If properly cared for, your Kokodama may last for years! Remember to not water your plants directly in the coconut fibre pot, and you’ll have yourself a happy ever after ending.

Where Do I Hang My Kokodama?

Hang your Kokodama plants away from places with extreme temperatures, such as direct sunlight. A semi-secluded spot with a balanced room temperature is ideal. Don’t hang your Kokodama in air-conditioned rooms, too. Reflecting on what we said earlier, Kokodamas hate places that are too hot or too cold.

When hanging your Kokodamas, make sure to hang them securely. Our Kokodamas come with the necessary hanging rope to do so. But, if you plan on doing some DIY, jute or cotton rope will work. Get a thicker rope so that your Kokodama can hang securely.

Can I Replant Kokodama Plant?

In theory, yes! But, then your pretty little plants won’t fit in the Kokodama, and that’s no fun. Most of our plants in the Kokodama have a shallow root system and they can live in a flat environment. Perfect for our coconut fibre pots! If you really want to repot your plant, you can, and you can certainly pop another plant in the Kokodama pot! Maybe even a little cutting from the mother plant? 

Why Is My Kokodama Drooping?

Just like any other plant, plants in Kokodamas can be prone to underwatering and overwatering. If your Kokodamas are drooping, chances are that they are underwatered. One good tip is to find out your Kokodama’s preferred watering schedule. 

A general rule of thumb is to water your plant little and often and mist in between - most of our Kokodama plants are tropical and prefer humid conditions. Plus, using this method will help keep the paper pot intact!
